What a groovy little venue is Barnard Griffin. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the acoustics in that room.
It makes the "room" recording (from the Zoom Q3HD) so "live" and yummy sounding. Sigh.
Kevin, Mel, and Lee are now officially on track to become a trio named "3-Way Street" somewhere around the end of February 2014.
We still have a few gigs left between Spasso and Baja Dunes...so hang in there.
The vibe this particular evening was beautiful, rich, and loooovely. Folks genuinely appreciated the concert.
Kevin decided (at Mel's urging) to setup his keyboard command center so he could STAND! Yay! It was fun. Much easier to get to things.
This particular recording is the matrix recording:
A "matrix" recording is where you take a soundboard recording (the Zoom R16 in this case) and blend in a stereo recording "from the room" (in this case, a Zoom Q3HD sitting at the back of the room pointed at our PA speakers).
Matrix recordings usually pick up more of the room noise and crowd noise, but it is the frequencies and overall sound of the room that the soundboard recording DOESN'T pick up...so blending these two sources gives you a more "live" and warm sound when compared to a straight soundboard recording.
Until next time,
Kevin B. Selby
